Mother Tongue

How does the political situation affect women’s rights in Turkey? At present many respond negatively to developments in Turkey as a result of stricter censorship of critical voices.

Six female artists address the situation of freedom of speech and human rights in the exhibition “Mother Tongue”.

With the latest events in Turkey as a backdrop, the exhibition is highly relevant. In a country that is becoming increasingly authoritarian, these artists remind us of the importance of the free creative art scene,” says curator Brynjar Bjerkem from TrAP


By Nezaket Ekici, CANAN, Çağdaş Kahriman, Savas Boyraz, Işıl Eğrikavuk and Selda Asal. The exhibition is curated by Malin Barth and Brynjar Bjerkem for the institutions Kunsthall 3, 14 and TrAP.
